Hi Bob and all,

Glad you cleared that up...otherwise there would have been 5-6 voice  
repeater objects beaconed everytime here.

In Dublin (Ireland) we have one digi operating (at the moment) versus  
3-4 (I know I have left one or two out) 2m and 70cm voice repeaters,  
70% of which are within coverage of the digi.

So, if there are 2-3 voice repeaters (2m, and 70cm) within coverage  
of the digi, its suggested to beacon them?
